which file system are you using?

ext4 is known to have problems with heavy disk I/O.

I would like to second this issue as well...
My computer almost comes to a grind when there is a high disk activity like copying large files to my SATA II disk..
Also out of curiosity would like to confirm one thing..
While copying large files to sata2 disk i never get above 25-50MB data copy rate. Is this normal in Ubuntu or am i missing something?

My Specifications:
Ubuntu 9.04 amd64 fully updated.
AMD Athlon64 X2 4000+
Seagate 250 GB SATA2
MSI K9AGM4-L, AMIBIOS v2.0B11
2 GB 800MHZ DDR2 Transcend

Thanks.

Forgot to mention, that I had this issue using Hardy 32 bit as well.
Also with ext3 as well as ext4 file systems...

I have the same problem, updating to ubuntu 10.10 my one system after gnome start screen completely freezed. I had to reinstall the whole system. Now when I copy files(more than 500MB) it freezes every time. Using parted cd copying of file of anysize is without any problem. So this is problem of UBUNTU. Can anybody help?
